I mentioned in a previous post that I’ve finally got my blogging mojo back and am trying to stay on top of writing up posts now. Unfortunately I now have a teething 5 month old to contend with so blogging is purely done when she’s in bed as mum life takes priority.
I love sharing new mama life with you and thought I’d share what my first 5 months of maternity leave has consisted of.
Cleaning hahaha this is laughable in the first 10 weeks or so. I literally stressed my head off thinking about the cleanliness of my house and frantically running round at the weekend when Bob was at home to get it done. Eventually I remembered what everyone kept telling me; the cleaning would still be there and I needed to enjoy my time with Freya. I can confirm my house is generally pretty clean nowadays as I’ve got into a decent routine but it was extremely difficult.
After recently attending my first wedding since getting married myself and having a baby in the meantime, it’s safe to say I spent many an hour browsing websites to find the right outfit. I haven’t yet lost all my pregnancy gains so trying to find outfits that wouldn’t over accentuate my wobbles was key. Here’s some of my favourite occasion dresses that I found on Quiz clothing; all of which are affordable if you’re working on a budget.

After what feels like a lifetime, I’m finally catching up on blogging and reviewing some of the wonderful products we purchased for Freya. To kick things off, I’m reviewing the Sleepyhead Deluxe+ Pod.
Initially we didn’t buy into the hype of the Sleepyhead and chose not to purchase one before she was born. Thankfully when Freya arrived into the world 2 weeks early, she settled extremely quickly into her Bassinet. Fast forward 4 weeks later, we were struggling with where to put her for daytime naps and decided to purchase one so she could lie downstairs with us and nap during the day.
